Refurbishment for Liberty Square Riverboat has Been Extended

Liberty Square Riverboat

Over in the Magic Kingdom, the Liberty Square Riverboat has been going through a refurbishment that was originally scheduled for January 8th through to July 19th. Well, it looks like the Liberty Square Riverboat refurbishment has been extended through the fall of 2018. No exact reopening date yet.

This extended refurbishment will cancel any reservations made for Tiana’s Riverboat Party – Ice Cream Social & Viewing Party. This was a favorite for Tiana fans. Guests are able to board the riverboat to enjoy an incredible birds-eye-view parade viewing for the park’s “Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade” and a cruise around Tom Sawyer’s Island. Princess Tiana and Naveen will join the group on the Liberty Belle Riverboat after the parade concludes for photos.

Taking a cruise on the Riverboat is always a nice relaxing break during a long park day.  Take off on a scenic half-mile adventure into the wilds of old America aboard a steam-powered paddler wheeler. Board the Colonial-American-inspired, 3-tiered Liberty Belle riverboat nestled in the heart of Liberty Square and embark on a relaxing journey around Tom Sawyer Island along the Rivers of America.

Sights to See
During this charming, 17-minute journey into America’s early frontier, behold a menagerie of sights along the river’s edge including:

• An early American settlement
• An idyllic Native American village
• Harper’s Mill
• Fort Langhorn
• Wilson’s Cave Inn
• Woodland animals, including deer
• Unique views of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and The Haunted Mansion

Along the way, listen to lively narration by iconic American author Mark Twain as he details a time when traveling was as much about new discoveries as it was about transportation.
